Finished Last Week:
Did Not Finish:
The premise behind the book, comparing dry cultures with wet ones is intriguing. Unfortunately, Mr. Osborne spends most of the book drunk or at least working his way towards it. He is also a complete snob. He lavishly details the luxurious hotels in which he resides, the extravagant amounts of money he spends on one drink, and the expensive cuisine he regularly eats along with the ridiculously expensive alcohol. This makes me question just how serious he is about wanting to truly delve into the two cultures and come to decent conclusions. When he wakes up with a massive hangover and no memory of how he got into his hotel room nor what he did the previous night, I was done. His obvious bias, and alcoholism, make this a difficult book to finish.
